POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. (AP) - A southeast Missouri man who reached a plea deal with prosecutors after allegedly admitting that he exposed up to 300 people to the virus that causes AIDS faces sentencing next month.

The Dexter Daily Statesman (https://bit.ly/1GnPo2R ) reports that David L. Mangum of Dexter pleaded guilty last week to two counts of recklessly risking infection of another person of HIV. Dexter police say they interviewed alleged victims from several southeast Missouri counties.

Police say Mangum told detectives that he tested positive for HIV in 2003, and he claimed to have had 300 partners in the years since, without informing them of his HIV diagnosis. It wasn’t immediately clear if any of his partners developed the disease.

Sentencing is July 21.
